Synopsis

Sensitive and enlightening, Cibou is set in 17th-century Mi’kma’ki, territory of the Mi’kmaq of Maritime Canada. The story is that of a young Mi’kmaw woman and her relationship with Jesuit missionary Antoine Daniel – a historical figure who was stationed in Cape Breton – and his brother, Captain Charles Daniel who had established a French fishing and trading post there. (The priest Daniel was later posted to Huronia where he later met a violent end and martyrdom as Saint Anthony Daniel.) Susan Biagi has woven a marvelously intuitive tale … at once beautiful and harsh, observing the simple and dangerous lives of cultures interacting on the threshold of new world history.
